Motoman Partners with Dassault Systemes to Deliver State-of-the-Art Simulation Software for the Academic Market

POSTED 02/22/2010

ton, Ohio — Dayton, OH – Motoman Inc., a leading industrial robot manufacturer, and Dassault Systèmes, Inc., a worldwide leader in 3D and PLM solutions, have entered into a partnership to market the DELMIA Digital Manufacturing simulation software to colleges and universities in North America.  The DELMIA software suite includes Basic CATIA for 3D modeling, DELMIA V5 for robot simulation, plus three other components for human modeling, PLC validation and NC machining. 

“The Dassault suite delivers the five most essential elements for educating today’s engineering students in virtual manufacturing and PLM.  Through this partnership we are pleased to offer DELMIA software preconfigured with Motoman’s family of robots for the academic market,” says Roy Smolky, DELMIA Academic Sales – Americas.

“As a global leader in industrial robotics, Motoman has a long history of providing schools with robots and software for use in their engineering or technology programs.  Adding the DELMIA software allows for a single development environment to be used for the entire CIM cell, not just for the robot.  Educators can now focus on imparting automation concepts rather than on the particulars of a given robot language,” according to Erik Nieves, Technology Director for Motoman Inc.

Nieves adds, “Motoman is especially pleased to have DELMIA V5 support programming and simulation of our seven axis robots.  The SIA family of highly dexterous robot arms is unique, and offers the academy an unprecedented hardware platform for research.  Combining the SIA with Dassault’s software will enable schools to explore new applications while preparing tomorrow’s engineers to be productive upon graduation.”

As a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, Dassault Systèmes brings value to more than 115,000 customers in 80 countries. A pioneer in the 3D software market since 1981, Dassault Systèmes develops and markets PLM application software and services that support industrial processes and provide a 3D vision of the entire lifecycle of products from conception to maintenance to recycling. The Dassault Systèmes portfolio consists of CATIA for designing the virtual product - SolidWorks for 3D mechanical design - DELMIA for virtual production - SIMULIA for virtual testing - ENOVIA for global collaborative lifecycle management, and 3DVIA for online 3D lifelike experiences.  Dassault Systèmes’ shares are listed on Euronext Paris (#13065, DSY.PA) and Dassault Systèmes’ ADRs may be traded on the US Over-The-Counter (OTC) market (DASTY).
